Ramsgate judoka will be learning judo combinations next and earning their Advanced Judo certificates.
The Advanced Combination Judo programme is a pack of coaching resources that help coaches teach and kids learn 20 judo combinations.
Tai otoshi combinations
When working on combinations it is a good idea to take your major waza and work around it.
For example, let’s take Tai Otoshi as our major waza.
Set it up!
First work on a set up throw into Tai Otoshi, like Ouchi-Gari.
Ouchi Gari works very well as it creates the movement that opens your partner up for the Tai-otoshi perfectly.
Follow up throw
Once you have that nailed, start developing follow up throws for when uke avoids or blocks your main waza.
